I wish you all the best for the elections but - as I understand Marx and your position - the material conditions for socialism do not exist within capitalism: class consciousness. The election will only show that the workers neither understand nor want socialism.
As my colleague has already said: we don't expect to win, just to raise class consciousness. More than that, though, how can we know the state of class consciousness unless we test it in the most effective way available, through the universal franchise?

More importantly, though, if people let others know about their class consciousness, the more chance we have of spreading it and building it. That's why it is important that, if you live in either of the constituencies we're contesting, and you support the socialist case, that you vote for us.
